Changing the "Cradle to Prison" Pipeline to "Cradle to Career"

My Brother's Keeper

The National Council on Educating Black Children commends our President Barack Obama  for developing a national initiative for Black and Latino Males; an elevated focus that is  supported by our Board of Directors and our  membership.   

Far too long, too many young males of color have been sacrificed, by the wealthiest nation on the planet.  In the words of Nelson Mandela, "You can judge the soul of a nation by the way it treats their children." The declaration to elevate this discussion to a national level is welcomed with exuberance.

NCEBC continues to address the areas research identifies as correlates with school failure. We collaborate with stakeholders, and maintain a growing partnership with faith-based institutions, school districts, and community centers, to establish Augustus F. Hawkins Literacy Centers.  Currently there are 17 Literacy Centers operating in 6 states.  NCEBC provides a challenging and culturally relevant curriculum for grades preK-6,that is in alignment with common core standards, and a strong focus on identity development.  Pre and post reading assessments are given to students enrolled in our school-based centers, in addition all students receive three age-appropriate books a year, for their personal library.  We encourage the incorporation of technology to under-grid instruction in our Literacy Centers.
